Winter KCW has come, and just like last time, the valley I live in is shrouded in fog, making it very difficult to take any photos. I have in fact been doing a fair amount of sewing, but it sure has been hard to photograph anything, especially with my perpetually-in-motion girl, who usually appears as an indistinct blur.
First up was a linen Pepper Pinafore. I am a total sucker for natural-coloured linen, although it isn’t the most practical choice for kids’ clothing. I managed to snap a few pictures, and within half an hour it had tomato sauce spilled down the front.
I sewed it up in the size 4, and added an embroidered squirrel to one pocket. It still looked a little plain, so I added a simple running stitch around the bodice. The wooden buttons are sewn on with pink embroidery floss, to match the squirrel.
The pattern sewed up fairly easily, although I had a bit of an issue with the back of the bodice and had to fudge it a little bit. I wish I had extended the length of the bodice as well, since it is a bit snug under the arms. The result is so sweet though, and I will definitely make another one for the summer. The embroidery pattern is from Aneela Hoey’s book, “Little Stitches“.
